* Q-chan from ''PetShopOfHorrors'' is some sort of rabbit-devil creature with a cream-coloured pear-shaped body and rabbit ears, little white horns, black bat wings, a black devil tail, and black duck feet. [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight No-one ever really asks what he is.]] * Ryo-Ohki from ''TenchiMuyo'', when it's not a spaceship, looks like what some fans refer to as a "cabbit".

* ''SonicTheComic'' often had some sort of generic psuedo-DogFace animal that looked strange compared to other characters, that would appear to populate city areas. Grimer is..Something. He looks like a Goblin, or at least something non-animal; how he came to be on Mobius is never explained.

* In ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'', [[VideoGame/YoshisIsland Yoshi]] is usually described as some kind of dinosaur, but other than sharing a basic body shape with dinos like [[RaptorAttack raptors]], TyrannosaurusRex, and other carnosaurs; there's not much resemblance.

* {{Cheburashka}} from Russian cartoons, pictured above. He appears to be part teddy bear, part koala, and part monkey. Cheburashka is the name of his species they agreed on. Originally his name was translated into English as "Topple". Cheburashka, according to the book, is "a funny little creature, unknown to science, who lives in the tropical forest". Some people say that he is reminiscent of lorids.

* The hero of the SegaSaturn game ''VideoGame/{{Bug}}''. Besides being a FourLeggedInsect, he doesn't seem to be based off any real-life bug- he's a green bug with the head of a praying mantis, the body of a grasshopper, and the stinger of a bee.

** What about Bulbasaur and it's evolutions? Is it a toad? A lizard? A dinosaur? A cat? Bulbasaur's Japanese name [[LampshadeHanging even translates to "isn't it strange?"]]

* While most of the characters on the show ''WesternAnimation/TootAndPuddle'' avoid this, Commander Betty from the story "Astronaut Camp" falls into this trope. On one hand, she's most likely an alligator given the association with Florida where the episode takes place. On the other hand, her design doesn't look much like an alligator and some fans even think she resembles a strangely colored ''pike'' instead.
